At our Lafayette LA Dentist Office, we offer thorough, comprehensive dentistry – essentially practically everything you need to have a healthy, beautiful smile with emphasis on comfort, function and longevity– under one roof. We try to make it easier for you to get total dental healthcare from skilled dentists you know and trust. We also work in conjunction with other offices throughout the state in providing dental implant treatment for their patients as well.
We practice according to the principle “inform before you perform. We will always take the time to discuss your treatment options with you, explain procedures to you in plain English and use technology (i.e. photographs, case examples, animations, etc.) and give you the tools you need to make an informed decision.
Total Preventive Care
In dentistry (as in most things) prevention is preferable to treatment. We will work with you to develop a home-care routine you can commit to and help you improve your brushing and flossing technique. In some cases, preventive treatments like fluoride and sealants can help protect your teeth, and we will discuss these with you if you are a candidate.
Preventive care also includes regular x-rays. Dental x-rays are a powerful diagnostic tool. They allow us to see beneath your gums and under your enamel to find problems when they are small and easily treatable with conservative approaches. Because we value your safety, our office relies on digital x-rays, which use significantly less radiation than traditional film x-rays.
Restorative Dental Care
Our dentists Dr. Jerome Smith and Dr. Daniel Domingue are experts in the field of restorative dentistry. Whether you need to restore broken or decayed teeth with crowns or onlays or you are in need of a full-mouth reconstruction including dentures or dental implants, we can care for you every step of the way.
Drs. Smith and Domingue are so skilled in the field of dental implant placement and restoration that other dentists actually come to them for additional training. We are also able to perform bone grafting, an advanced procedure that is used to restore atrophied bone in your jaw to make dental implant placement a possibility.
Your smile is often the first thing that people notice about you. If your smile does not represent the image you want the world to see, give us a call. From teeth whitening to crowns to dental veneers, we can give you a beautiful smile that you will be proud to show off again and again.
It’s estimated that as many as 30% of Americans aren’t getting the dental care they need because of fear and anxiety associated with seeing the dentist. Are you one of them?
Our Lafayette, LA dental office is one of only a few in the state to offer IV sedation dentistry. With IV sedation dentistry, you can relax and rest comfortably during your entire dental procedure. While you may fall asleep, most of our patients remain awake, although in a very deep sedated state. Your procedure will fly by, and you probably won’t remember most of it.
